Conservatives label Cruz “dumb” and “selfish”
by Steve Watson, Infowars:
GOP nominee Donald Trump has dismissed Ted Cruz’s RNC snub in typical fashion, declaring it to be “no big deal”.
In a tweet sent out early Thursday, Trump noted that in refusing to endorse Trump, Cruz effectively broke a pledge he made to the GOP earlier in the year to support the eventual nominee.
Trump also noted that he allowed Cruz to make his speech, even though he read it ahead of time, and knew the Senator would not be endorsing him.
Wow, Ted Cruz got booed off the stage, didn’t honor the pledge! I saw his speech two hours early but let him speak anyway. No big deal!

The backlash to Cruz’s move has made headlines across the country.
Some have suggested that Trump allowed Cruz to speak, knowing that the reaction to the Senator from most GOP supporters would be a hostile one.
Cruz himself doubled down on Thursday, again refusing to commit to vote for Trump, and claiming that he personally told Trump days ago that he wasn’t going to endorse him.
